Wonderful Moments in Living Colour (and White)!

For our Technique Nights this month, our theme is techniques with ribbon and one of the techniques we're going to explore is dying ribbon. The card we're making using this technique is one that uses the Wonderful Moments Stamp Set because it has the stamp with the image of the Bride in it. What if you could create a wedding card for the bride that would incorporate her wedding colours in it and have elegant ribbon to go along with it.

Well, as long as Stampin' Up! has a Stampin' Blends alcohol marker that approximates that colour, you are in luck. Let's say that the bride had coral as her wedding colour. All you would need to do is to get out your Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Combo and you could not only colour around the image of the bride, but you could also take some white ribbon and use the Stampin' Blends to dye the ribbon as well! So easy! Here's how it turned out:

  • I used the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder for the background. The Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing Folders were used to create that elegant frame around the image of the bride.
  • The ribbon used is the Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon, which was coloured with the Calypso Coral Light Stampin' Blends Marker, using the brush tip. It dries so fast, due to the alcohol base.
  • The bride image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I used the So Saffron Stampin' Blends Combo and the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Combo to colour it in.
  • The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is stamped in Calypso Coral ink.
  • The same design in Mint Macaron, only this time the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder was used for the background panel, and the Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends Combo instead of the Calypso Coral Combo.
  • And the same card, only using the Highland Heather Stampin' Blends Combos.
This way you could totally coordinate the wedding card with the wedding colours of the bride!!
